    I have been working at Continental Mills full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great, people are engaged in their work and people are given a lot of ownership of their businesses; people don't take themselves too seriously and enjoy spending time with the people they work with.

    Cons

    There are a lot of meetings, as is the case in most companies. Sometimes there are meetings to have meetings to prepare for the next meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Preserve the culture and the things that make the company great even through rapid growth and transition; remain true to what has made the company successful and don't be distracted by new, shiny objects

    Digital Media Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tukwila, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Tukwila, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Continental Mills.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from a temp who was suppose to set up an interview between the HR Business partner and myself. Then received another email that the temp would be conducting the interviews on the HR business partners behalf. I spent more than an hour on the phone with this woman -- who was nice but obviously not a decision maker in the process. I answered every question "on the money." She told me she had a list of 10 questions. I don't know how many she actually asked because she spent a lot of time talking about herself and how happy she was to be working with the company. It was odd. She was odd. But I rolled with it, as the role would have been a perfect fit for my skills and experience, and judging from the company's current digital presence -- nonexistent -- it would have been really satisfying to shepherd them into the 21st century. Received an email within a few days, a form letter mind you, by the original HR Business Manager who I never interviewed with, telling me it was nice speaking with but they were moving forward with other candidates. Spoke with the temp. She apparently had 10 questions to ask, which she said she took down the responses verbatum, which I really doubt, without any input and they made the decision..... It was the most ridiculous HR screen I have ever gone through.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions weren't difficult. They were mundane, badly structured and provide no insight into the skills or the person they are interviewing. But one surprising question was "How would you fit into a family where there are many couples and family members who work here together (can you say nepotism?)?" Like I said, it was stupid.   View Answer
